Nathan "Nate" Phelps (born November 22,[1] 1958) is an American-Canadian author, LGBT rights activist,[2] and public speaker on the topics of religion and child abuse. He is the son of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps. He left the church at 18 and permanently left in 1980. This was because of his different and mostly opposite beliefs of his father.

Phelps was born in Topeka, Kansas. He lives in Calgary, Alberta.
